    Jay Z has hailed former US President Barack Obama as the "greatest rapper of all time"

    The 47-year-old hip-hop star is a long-time supporter of the 44th US President and has included him among his biggest career inspirations after being inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.


    In a long-winded Twitter post, Jay wrote: "Thank you to all the people that have inspired me . Rakim KANE KRS chuck cube Jaz Em Andre Nas big PAC cole kendrick chance jayE ..wait, "Lauryn Nicki lite latifah common ye drake and meek .

    The 'Empire State of Mind' hitmaker named his wife Beyonce among his list of favourite rap artists, while he also denied being drunk as he tweeted.

    He continued: "S**t did I say redman ? Ghost and Rae . Wu tang I beat Genius in a rap battle I think ha . Busta (him too) Treach . Thug . B a rapper too!

    "S**t ...Wayne , Juve BG Nipsey . Kim . Slaughterhouse (yes mouse too

    (sic)"

    Jay - who uses Twitter sparsely - subsequently mocked his own social media skills, before hailing the influence of the former US President.

    He said: "F**k ..50 cent big L sho ag nice and smooth Joe and pun .
